LIFTD are a designer and supplier of luxury gyms, creating stylish and functional spaces with exceptional equipment. Each project is bespoke based on size, location, design, aesthetic, and fitness needs of their users.
One of LIFTD’s recent clients was Unite Students, one of the largest student accommodation providers in the UK. The brief was to design and supply a new facility at University Campus of Football Business in Wembley, home to over 900 students. It was crucial that the facility was highly functional to cater to the diverse fitness requirements of the students.
BLK BOX Goliath Compact Racks with BLK BOX Weightlifting platforms were installed alongside Coloured HD Bumpers, Barbell Holders and Glute Ham Developers. Utilising every inch of space was important in the design so a selection of BLK BOX storage solutions were chosen including Basecamp Storage for Dumbbells and Kettlebells and Wall Mounted storage options for Foam Rollers.
“I knew BLK BOX were best in the business for equipment with an athlete focus and kit that was also highly functional” - James Potter, LIFTD Director
LIFTD’s client wanted the facility to not only be highly functional, but to look professional with customisation and specific colour schemes to match their brand. After providing their specific RAL colour code, BLK BOX manufactured the Goliath Compact Racks and storage units in the same colour as the benches, giving the set-up a bespoke and unique feel.
LIFTD worked closely with the architects involved in the project to consider every aspect of design including mirror locations, lighting, wall finishes and power layouts. Whilst this was a facility focused on sports performance, LIFTD kept a keen eye on the design features that make it so impressive.
Unite Students are raising the standard of student accommodation in the UK, and this impressive state of the art facility certainly proves that.
